Seven of Alabama's entrants are from the national championship-winning defense, and four of those I could picture going in the first or second round.
Arenas is a great defensive back prospect who could play some nickel as a rookie. He's got speed to burn, and could return kicks if NFL honchos were so inclined.
Either Deaderick or Washington will crack the top two rounds, and if Cody can prove that he will hold up at the point of attack, he could be a NFL hall of fame nose in a 3-4.
Justin Woodall secured the same agent as OT Andre Smith, so he's sure to get drafted, sign a contract with all kinds of bells and whistles, and still never play a down as a rookie.
Rolando McClain is the real deal at middle linebacker, huge, hulking and with a punishing, driving first hit. He's sure to be a candidate for rookie of the year and could be the first inside linebacker—or overall linebacker—taken.
And Jackson is drawing praise as the best pure corner in the draft. From a top defensive secondary like Alabama's, that's no surprise.
On offense, the Tide are no slouches either. Leigh TIffin is Alabama's leading scorer after four years of kicking it through the uprights, and in a year when kickers, old and young, were a liability, he could see himself drafted high (sorry, the Raiders already resigned Janikowski).
Colin Peek's stock is on the rise and the Patriots are apparently interested.
And the OG, Mike Johnson, slid from guard to tackle when necessary. He plays with a mean edge, and is a top prospect on the interior.
